why it does not view an icon in the menu ?

B4X:
Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    Activity.LoadLayout("main")
    x = 0
    If FirstTime = True Then
        speedtest.Initialize("speedtest")
        speedtest.FileName = "speedtest.jpg"
        speedtest.Directory = File.DirInternalCache
        speedtest.Download("http://download.linnrecords.com/test/mp3/recit.aspx")
    End If
    job1.Initialize("Job1", Me)
    enter = False
    feature = False
    Activity.AddMenuItem2("test","about",LoadBitmap(File.DirAssets,"actions-help-about-icon.png"))
End Sub
i included the png in the attached files, it is 36*36
any ideas ?

It depends on the Android version. Starting from Android 4 (holo theme) there are no menu icons. You should use AddMenuItem3 instead and the icons will be added to the action bar.
even the following is not working for me

B4X:
Activity.AddMenuItem3("test","about",LoadBitmap(File.DirAssets,"about.png"),true)
